At the start of 2016, Suptic changed the name of his YouTube channel to ”The Steven Suptic Experience.” He also started to upload more different types of videos.
At the same time, he had stopped uploading Minecraft videos. He explained:
“There comes a time in one’s life where they look at what they’re doing and think to themselves, holy f### I’m 22 years old and I’m playing Minecraft for a living.”
Steven later added:
“So that’s why I’ve strayed from doing those videos.”
Later, he started an affiliation with the Let’s Play Family and Rooster Teeth (a production group from Austin).
Since then, Suptic has participated in a few Let’s Play and Achievement Hunter (an ongoing series created by Rooster Teeth staff members) related videos.
At the end of 2016, Steven was re-hired by SourceFed as a host on the main YouTube channel.
On March 24, 2017, the channel was closed.
